A trip from Eagle Mountain to get to work at 7:30 a.m. at the Wells Fargo Building on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City used to take 45 minutes via a Utah Transit Authority commuter bus.
Now here comes the much-awaited FrontRunner, and the trip now takes two hours, if everything is on time. For this I get to pay about $190 each month, which is about to be increased.
UTA is one of the most expensive public transit systems in the country, with way too many top-heavy costs. FrontRunner might be a good thing, but when you more than double commute times for the same money, something is wrong.
